    It can be done,but your dealer may find reason to void your warranty if they don't spec that truck for plowing.

    Do a search,there have been lots of recent discussion on upgrading the front springs,and putting plow on the Super-dutys.

    With a long truck like that,you want a 9 ft blade at least.

    There are a lot of people with trucks like yours that have 8ft to 9ft snowplows on them. I think you will be able to plow with the truck with no problem. Anyplow plow would work just fine for you although i think a nice 8'6'' fisher HD series snowplow would complete the truck:)

    I have an 8'2" Boss V for my 2002 F-350 Crew Cab, Lariat, diesel. It works just fine. Ford requires you to have a snowplow package on trucks you are going to put a blade on, but the crew-cab is not supposed to be having plows [so they say!!] But they don't know anything!:confused: But that doesn't mean you can't do it.

    90Plow, that was a good one! Like Chris said, I think there has been a recent discussion on just this question and I bet if you search the site a little, alot of topics would come back with more or less the same question. Look inside your doorjam on the driverside and you will find a white sticker with black lettering. Look where it says SPRING, or it might just say SPR, see what letters are there. There should be 2 letters next to each other. "X" springs in the front are the way to go if you wanna hang a plow on the front of that truck. Mike

    I ran a crew cab short box Ford 7.3 PSD with 8 Ft Western a few years ago, great plow truck, a foot of snow won't slow it down! Just traded it because local Ford dealer service is awful.
